The restaurant’s last day in business is scheduled for June 30, according to a Facebook post by Tudor Square, the development where Arepa Mia will open its new outpost.

“Arepa Mia is moving to Tudor Square bringing its fantastic Venezuelan food and service to Avondale Estates,” according to the social media announcement.

“Please visit one of its two [Atlanta] locations. You’ll be glad you did. The Decatur store will be closing June 30 to begin moving to Tudor Square.”

The Venezuelan concept, founded by Lisbet Hernandez, got its start in the Sweet Auburn Market downtown in 2011, and made What Now Atlanta’s Elite 100 in 2016 and 2017.

“This new location has better parking, the building is in better condition, and is more accessible,” Hernandez in an email Saturday told What Now Atlanta.

“I am very, very excited about the new home of Arepa Mia and to be part of Avondale Estates.”

Arepa Mia could open late-July, early August in Tudor Square, according to Hernandez.
